Bearcats' defenceman, Weeks Crushers' goalie in MHL Players of the Week

MHL

The Maritime Junior Hockey League has announced its Players of the Week for the opening week of the 2020-21 season.

The league says one player from each team will be selected to fill out three forwards, two defencemen and a goaltender for each division on a weekly basis, though multiple players from one team may be selected if not all teams are in action that week.

Truro Bearcats' defenceman Zach Bennett and Pictou County Weeks Crushers' goaltender Ewan MacDonald made the shortlist for the Eastlink South Division in Week 1.

Bennet had two points in Truro's victory over Valley on Sunday, while MacDonald made 39 saves in Pictou County's victory over Valley on Friday.
